Signing app submission for BlackBerry PlayBook

Hello everyone.


I have received confirmation of a successful submission of my PlayBook application but have been advised that the app must be "signed".


I have successfully completed and validated all steps in the procedure as outlined in the blog post

"http://devblog.blackberry.com/2011/02/blackberry-signing-tool/"  that I was directed to by the BlackBerry Developer Program Team except the very last one.


Below is the info from that last step


Sign the .bar file for a BlackBerry WebWorks application

You can sign your BlackBerry® WebWorks™ application when you compile it, by using the password that you defined when you requested and installed the registry key.

Use the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ Packager and specify the -gcsk, -gp12, and -buildId options with their respective passwords:

bbwp "C:\myarchive.zip" -gcsk mycskpassword -gp12 myp12password -buildId 10 -o "C:\myoutputdir"


All items indicated are available as a result of the earlier steps.


None of the command line parameters suggested in this procedure are recognized by the bbwp command. Is this a known problem or am I missing something?


I am very anxious to complete the submission process.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you for your time.

Re: Signing app submission for BlackBerry PlayBook

make sure you have the latest 0.9.4 sdk installed. I didnt have any issues with the signing.
